When the Oral B toothbrush controls your TV

[German]It’s been a few days since electric Bluetooth toothbrushes were ‘celebrated’ at trade fairs. Via the Bluetooth interface, you can access the data of the Oral B toothbrushes and get all kinds of information and do some unexpected things.

I just came across the video linked in the following tweet, where the Oral B electric toothbrush is misused to remotely control the TV.

The person in question has posted his or her tracker code at GitHub. After pairing, he or she can use Bluetooth to retrieve data about the condition (idle, running), brush mode (daily cleaning, tongue, lightening, etc.), pressure, and some other data. And the Oral B toothbrush can also be actively used to give signals via Bluetooth.
